Will you take prevented planting acres for corn this year?

With major planting delays this year and then what seemed to be constant rain in many areas across the Corn Belt, there were acres meant for corn that didn't get planted. Final planting dates for corn have come and gone across the Midwest. Now growers have to make the decision: risk planting corn after the final planting date, take prevented planting payments, switch the acres to soybeans or even plant cover crops. What will be your choice for corn acres that didn't get planted this year? We'd love to hear your comments on this, and let us know what county and state you're taking prevented planting acres in.

I am not sure. Many people as well as government agents are talking about this. We have always taken the preventive measures. But I am not sure why they are asking us to take a method that is in this magnitude.
